The menu is tight with fusion-like Japanese inspired dishes. Only set menus are available, featuring a fusion of Japanese staples and Spanish tapas with well balanced dishes like steam egg and sea urchin, unagi foie gras and seaweed rice to the yuzu tart served with lemon grass ice cream. I went during their soft opening so […]

So, I have been travelling a whole lot for work this year and grateful for the opportunities to be out of Macau. But that also meant I haven’t had time to do my Hong Kong sanity runs – since there was less need to be scrambling out to get on the ferry. Thankfully I always […]

The last time I ate here at Migas Beijing, was when the restaurant first opened during the winter when I was still living in Beijing. Chef Aitor is doing amazing things here, working with lots of local produce and we got to taste what he was experimenting with. Good news is he’s also coming to […]

We drove down from France’s Basque region in search of Spanish Basque food and unfortunately only had two meals to fulfill our eating adventures. Dinner was reserved for San Sebastian’s 3 Michelin Starred Akélare and we had pintxos (or what I like to call tapas that is not correct Basque terminology – but you know […]


It seems to be the new trend in Hong Kong these days, with tapas/Spanish/Mediterranean cuisine hitting the dining scene. BCN is a little older than the newer additions like 22 Ships and Boqueria (more writing to come!), but still a pretty good choice for dining – the food is great, service is friendly and you […]

I’m racing to finishing my 2011 updates before 2012, so I’m attempting shorter quality entries. Mesa15 was recommended by our friend chef B, they do great tapas but I guess we didn’t get the special starred chef treatment so we didn’t have anything to rave about. The Michelin starred chef Alejandro Sánchez of his eponymous […]

  Another great meal with the AG foodies group. The private kitchen idea is flourishing in Hong Kong and I don’t quite get the fuss, but I really enjoyed and appreciated what Carrie and her partner has done at Comilonas. Carrie has never lived in Spain, but regular visits to visit her Spanish husband’s family […]

Miga’s a sweet new spot that soft opened last night at Beijing’s Nali Patio hotspot, adding to the Mediterranean vibe in the block. Looks like some healthy competition for Mosto, Niajo and soon to be opened Agua. I’m really looking forward to having dinner on the rooftop at Miga’s. Under the creative direction of Chef […]

I ate at Carmen about 2 months ago and was sorely disappointed. I still wonder if I ordered wrong or was it just a bad day? A handful of my friends have been raving about how great the food is, but we have rather different preferences.. I should try it again sometime soon because I […]
